Fellowship Foci

“My time as a Fellow at the ACLU of Georgia has been one of the best experiences of my career. As an academic, my main goal is to make the work I produce in the academy accessible and impactful to the communities I write about. Humanity in Action provided me with an opportunity to connect my work on the history of the carceral state to the policy level through this Fellowship.”
